Schisandra Chinensis (Magnolia) Fruit Extract



Schisandra Chinensis (Magnolia) Fruit Extract description

Also known as five flavour fruit and Chinese magnolia vine, magnolia fruit is a small red berry loaded with beneficial compounds.[br] [br] Lignans are the chief component in this berry, responsible for its skin-calming and restorative results. The lignans interrupt factors in skin that lead to visible problems like redness while enhancing factors that help skin look healthier, smoother, and even-toned.[br] [br] The magnolia berry is also a great source of polysaccharides, phytosterols plus polyphenols and flavonoids, including hyperoside, isoquercitrin, rutin and quercetin, all of which provide antioxidant benefit and help strengthen against environmental exposure. These components, plus lignans, also make this berry a boon for overall health when consumed orally.
